Author: David Kay; Lynda Springate

Author Bio: Although an engineer by background, David Kay spent 25 years in the pharmaceutical industry before becoming an independent consultant. With a lifelong interest in old cars it was only natural for David to become interested in car mascots, an interest which developed into fascination in the early 1980s. He now has an extensive collection of British marque mascots, which he hopes will be displayed in an appropriate museum one day. David lives with his wife in the northwest of England and they have two adult daughters.Motoring mascots and badges have always been a keen interest for Lynda Springate, who joined the staff of Britain’s National Motor Museum in 1984. She became Head Librarian of the Museum in 1988, and Picture Library Manager in 1992. Since leaving the Museum in 1995, Lynda has contributed to various journals, CD-ROMs and the Encyclopaedia of the Horse (Greenwich), and has also written the following books: Automotive Mascots (Veloce), Collins Gem Classic Cars, A Pictorial History of Jaguar (Crowood), and a Nostalgic Look at Riley Cars (Silver Link). Lynda lives in the south of England, near Winchester, with her husband Frank, and their son.
